Step 3 - Choose flexible or fixed staking for your CRO
You will see that there are three options for staking CRO: flexible staking (withdraw Cronos any time you wish), 1-month term, or 3-month term. The longer you decide to lock your CRO, the higher your staking rewards APY will be. In this example, we will select the 3-month term, as you receive the highest interest rates.

Once you have made your purchase of CRO, stake it and begin earning interest!
